Parents are invited to visit their child’s prospective school in person between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to provide the following required documents to register: birth certificate, immunization records (including hepatitis A & B, DTAP, MMR, IPV and varicella — contact your physician’s office to ensure compliancy for school) and proof of residency in Carson City (utility bill, mortgage or rental papers, voter registration, etc.).

Additionally, children who will be 4 years old by Sept. 30, 2020, and whose family qualifies under the federal household income guidelines at https://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty-guidelines can apply for the district’s pre-kindergarten program for the 2020-21 school year. There is limited space for Pre-K students zoned for the following schools: Bordewich Bray, Empire, Fremont and Mark Twain elementary schools. At this time, Fritsch and Al Seeliger will not be accepting pre-k applications.
